There are a few thinks to improve, one of the showers didn't have hot water, one of the showers doors was broken, also a locker in my room and the beds are too noisy. But what makes it a great place is the staff, they are really helpfull and polite. The breakfast is great too.

We didn't enjoy our stay at all. The air conditioner is only turned after 22, and there are no fan in the dorms. We tríed to take a nap the day we got there, and it was impossible because of the heat. We talked to the staff and they answer rudely. You can't store drinks in the refrigerator, the dorms are really small, there is no place to hang clothes to dry, and they have very strict rules. On top of everything, the hostel flooded on the last night, and we didn't even get an apology!

New hostel with a great location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice common spaces and good security level with so many cameras that you sometimes feel like in Big Brother ;). Good breakfast. Despite its defects - crowded rooms and uncomfortable mattresses - I can recommend this hostel as a nice and cheap place to stay in Copacabana. Natalia, Mateus, other receptionists, bartenders and cleaning staff - thanks a lot!

Amazing location atmosphere and staff. 5 mins from Copacabana, 20 mins to ipanema. All very clean and safe, no problems whatsoever. Staff AMAZING! Stayed almost 2 weeks after only 5 days planned we loved it so much. Only minor minor thing was that the beds were really squeaky when you move around on them. However only minor point and really didn't detract from our stay at all!! Couldn't recommend this place more massive thank you I Natália Pedro and Alessandra for everything! We miss you!

Brilliant hostel with the most wonderful, friendly staff!! Perfectly located just a very short walk from the beach. It has a great atmosphere and made a brilliant start to our stay in South America. Wished we could have stayed here longer! The staff were ever so helpful and there was a great variety of activities to do. Muito obrigada por uma semana ótima! As três gringas inglesas, Taeya, Amelia e Emma :)

Better to stay in Ipanema or Leblon if you can, but as a second choice this is a great hostel in Copacabana.

Had an absolutely amazing time here over Christmas and the new year. Great friendly helpful staff, felt very comfortable and welcomed. Only downside: the beds are very loud when people wriggle around !

By far the best hostel I`ve stayed in Rio (I`ve stayed at 5 different ones in copacabana). Great location, staff and rooms don`t feel as overcrowded as those in others. Bathrooms were kept clean at all times too.

Beds make a lot of noise. Staff try making money of everything and likes more to talk in the phone with friends then helping you. The woman who clean makes a hard work all day long, hope they pay her good...

Chill on the Beach is one of the best hostels I've stayed in-I'm now back for my third stay! What sets it apart is the great staff who are friendly, helpful and always willing to give you great advice about what to do in Rio! The hostel is also secure, clean, is in a great location and they offer a great free breakfast! Highly recommend.

The location is perfect and the staff was great. Breakfast was amazing if you consider that it's just a hostel.The beds were uncomfortable and noisy and the bedroom where I stayed was smelly since the day I arrived till the day I left. Still a great deal as it's a very good price in one of the best areas in Rio. They also offer cheap and tasty caipirinhas!
